Rated 4.33/5 based on 3 reviews
The beauty, performance and elegance of a European car chassis and body style with an American engine, usually a powerful V8, results in a very fast, small car that is suitable to win races or just to drive around, have fun and look great.

These cars are art on wheels and are appreciating in value as it becomes recognized that they are an important chapter in the history of the car. More

Review by: Pete Engel on Aug. 13, 2011 :
Mike chose an interesting topic, which has been underreported in the past. He covers all the major "hybrid" vehicles with accurate, factual, information in an easy-to-read format. Good color pictures are included. Recommended for those who want to learn more about an exciting time in automotive history when American engine technology was considered the world standard. Recommended!

I truly enjoyed reading Mike's book, and learned a lot from it. While I knew of many so-called European/American "Hybrids" existed, I had no idea there were actually that many, nor that they dated as far back as they did.

I highly recommend Mike's work, you'll enjoy the photos and commentary, for sure!

I just finished Mike Gulett's new book entitled European Style with American Muscle in one sitting. It was a nice read. Mike discloses much history not only about the cars, but the industry and the people as well. The color photos add a lot, so be sure to read the book on a reader that does them justice. I read it on my NOOK and then read it again in the PDF version to appreciate the photos. I highly recommend this book for any car enthusiast. He is obviously very knowledgable.
